Chemo delayed until tomorrow


They’ve decided to delay Noah’s next chemo treatment until tomorrow. From the way I understand it, evidently not enough time has passed since his last chemo treatment, so that’s why they wanted to push it back a day. We’re discovering that this whole process is pretty fluid. It sounds like tomorrow will be a fairly long day for Noah, as he’ll probably be at the hospital from about 9 a.m. until about 4 p.m.

Also, it looks like next Friday is the day for his MRD test. That’s the big one that gives us some early indication as to how he’s responding to treatment. We’re hoping for an MRD below 1 percent, which will keep him in the low risk group. We’re praying for an MRD of less than .01 percent.

    This procedure is pretty normal as his chemo will depend on his bloodwork and how he is responding to everything. It is a game of hit a run for all of you as the the game is only beginning unfortunately. Prayers for the MRD that the levels will be very low and Noah will be in the low risk group. I keep adding you all to the prayer groups of the same people who prayed for my son. Love to all.

    Praying for you all, especially Noah and the long day tomorrow.

    Stay strong, Have Faith.

    Will be praying that Noah’s MRD is so low it can only be attributed to God. Praying for the rest of the family as well.
